For those of you who want to see it in a larger format you may do so here:

Hmm

Don't really know what to think about this. This is far from being the worst Clock Day entry I have ever seen, but it sure is also far from being the best.

What I really appreciate about this piece is that you obviously put a lot of work into this. Drawing on a piece of paper, taking a picture, drawing again, taking a picture... and then to compile it in a flash file sure did take a lot of time to finish.

It's a real pity that the screen size is so small, sometimes it's hard to guess what's going on on the screen.

The musical selection was quite nice, but you have to work on the transitions a bit more. I understand that it was meant to sound like skipping through a TV programme, but the static noise in between the songs was just annoying.

Overall: If a friend would ask me if this movie was any good, I'd tell him: If you like Clock Day movies, it's worth to check this one out. If you don't, then it's nothing for you.

The reason why it's so small is to keep the file size down as this movie is not in mov. format and was entirely done it flash. ( minus drawing the picture, photographing them, and editing in photoshop ) also I felt having it larger destroyed the quality of theses pictures - something i'll have to work on in the future. But I personally don't consider it to much of a grape - you may have to watch it a few times to get it all but everything's there! and yea i was pleased with the soundtrack to. Thanks for the review ;D

Broken preloader, doesn't really recover

Well, this piece isn't the best, not by a long shot. I like the way that you've decided to make it around the size of a Post It! note and ran wih the idea of it. For reference, you may wish to scale the size of the piece up to actual, or even slightly bigger - you're probably 33% smaller than a Post It! note.

The preloader got stuck on a loop and I had to right click and play to get into the piece, which didn't help, though once it got started, we could see what was what.

I think that the various themes that you used here were nice and things like StrawberryClock doing backflips was a great idea. With the break piece between the two, perhaps you could have had an animated Strawberry flicking through the pad, with a Giant animated "HAPPY CLOCK DAY" being picked out on the pages, as he watches, may have been a better idea.

Some of the image quality was sacrificed, either by the quality of the original drawings, the scanner / photograph definition, or even struggles to align the images in each instance. These little details can make all the difference, so please take the time to get them right, as they do pay dividends.

KingDavid responds:

Yea, I dont know why he preloader did that... I didn't engineer it! =/
Lol and yea the strawberry flicking through is a good idea.
I tried my best man with my camera to take the best pictures I could, and used photoshop the best I could throughout, and tried the best I could to align this. The animations are all on scale just not the post it's through out. If I had been able to get into my school and scan them this may have turned out cleaner for sure, but alias I did what I could in August. I still have the post-its I drew on, so maybe I will re configure this and add more to it but this was soley for fun more or less, and it was! I did all the drawing in my basment window on a sunny days =)

Ya that was raw

I've always thought flip-book animation was the tits. This is however mediocre imo. Maybe it went to quick for me to see all the frames, maybe there weren't many frames, whatever it was, I didn't see much animation, mostly just a start and a finish with an occasional single, middle-frame.

because of the thickness of the paper i could only do pose 2 pose animation and i started doing this for the fuck of it a day or 2 before clockday... but there at least 50 drawn frames. This was not to create an epic masterpiece as much as it was just to fill up a movie, glad it has some entertainment value tho

Lol

This was random. Kinda like robot chicken. The screen size should be bigger though. Alot of this needs color though. I still enjoyed this though.

Keep it up?
